Seattle Mariners vs. Minnesota Twins – Wednesday, June 12th
Online Baseball Betting Odds:
The M’s swim into tonight’s contest sporting a lackluster 28-42 record that ranks them as the worst team in the AL West. Unsurprisingly, it also pegs them a whopping 19-games behind the division leading Houston Astros. And since Seattle is 3-7 in their last 10 matchups, it’s clear they don’t bring any momentum into tonight’s contest. Although they were close to upsetting the Mariners last night, they ultimately came up short on the road.
Surprisingly enough, the Mariners jumped to an early lead in their first game against Minnesota. In fact, Seattle delivered 3 runs in the 3rd. However, the Twins quickly responded by delivering 3 runs of their own in the 4th. From there the teams would go back and forth but the fate was sealed by the 3 runs Minnesota put up in the 8th followed by a shutout to open the 9th.
Coming off such a close loss, Seattle is well aware that they have what it takes to upset Minnesota. At the time of writing this article, it’s unclear who the Mariners will be starting. However, independent of who they chose, it looks like they’ll soon switch over to Tommy Milone, LHP. Milone is 1-1 this season and sports a 3.10 ERA.
Players to Watch: Domingo Santana (13 HR, 48 RBI, .279 BA), Mitch Haniger (15 HR, 32 RBI, .220 BA), and Edwin Encarnacion (21 HR, 49 RBI, .246 BA).
After winning the last two games consecutively, the Minnesota Twins now enter this matchup sporting a 44-21 record. Naturally, this record ranks Minnesota as the top dog in the AL Central. Additionally, it gives them a 10 10/2 game lead over their nearest threat – the Cleveland Indians.
Considering the type of win they’re coming off, the Twinkies are undoubtedly looking for a more dominant outing this evening. After all, they are leagues ahead of their competitor. To ensure this evening’s win is much more lopsided, the Twins will be starting Jose Berrios. Berrios enters this matchup with an 8-2 record on the season as well as a 3.14 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Eddie Rosario (19 HR, 52 RBI, .272 BA), Jorge Polanco (10 HR, 35 RBI, .341 BA), and Max Kepler (15 HR, 40 RBI, .263 BA).
